San Diego County Association of Educators
WE STAND WITH UTLA! ¡ESTAMOS CON UTLA!
JANUARY 15, 2019
On behalf of San Diego County Association of Educators receive a comradely salute to your cause, which we embrace as our own. We stand in solidarity with your struggle because we believe that achieving these demands requires worker unity. We continue to be on the side of the workers and are in full agreement for what you are fighting for:
Today more than ever, teachers and other education workers need to join the fight for better living and working conditions, to push back against the national trend that breaks down unions and struggle for the right to collective bargaining! We struggle for our rights as well as the rights of our students and the democratic schooling we need and deserve as we work towards a liberating education. We need to reject the rising tide of privatization in education, and view it as an attack on our labor, our profession and an especially brutal attack on our students and communities! We stand in solidarity with the maestr@s of Los Angeles, creating a working class front line to face the growing attacks on public education. With the current US economic and political climate, we see teachers as critical participants in the growing class struggle!
We believe in advancing the cause of free, universal, and quality public education while improving the conditions of teaching and learning. We also demand the promotion and protection of civil rights for all children and youth in order to secure a more just, equitable, and democratic society. United in struggle, students, teachers and community we reclaim our human dignity! For these reasons, we stand firmly in solidarity with the striking Teachers of Los Angeles!
